    hi there, I came across one of these in a music store for $15.. but it was diagnosed that it needs a new belt. I know this might not be all that's wrong with it but if that IS all that's wrong with it, I'd be willing to buy that and open it up, but my question is does anyone know where I...

    Troubleshooting new setup

    Hey guys, instead of calling it bad luck, im calling it an opportunity to learn. I scooped one of those "beginner all in one" guitar / amp kits a couple days ago, where the whole thing is in a box, with picks ect ect. It's a first act brand and was $85 total. The guitar is surprisingly...

    I'm trying to estimate two cost points for an acoustical door: - The entire assembly including mounting hardware, seals etc. - The door panel itself, excluding hardware, handle, etc. I have a way to go before arriving at an estimate for the entire door, but come up with this baseline cost...

    CAPI VP-28 DIY preamp review - clips included

    I first learned about CAPI gear on the forums. I was looking to dip my toes into the world of API sounds, not fully knowing what that meant. I had heard all the descriptors like punchy, forward mids, aggressive, tight, etc., but wanted to try it out for myself. So many great albums were done on...

    Repairing a Shure 545?

    Greetings- I recently bought an older Shure 545 (4-pin Amphenol era) on eBay, and while it works, it sounds a bit of the dog with voice: a greatly diminished low end, and reminiscent of talking through a paper towel tube. Given there's only three parts to the mic: cartridge, transformed and...

I've...

    Fixing UA La-610 Compressor (need schematics with voltage points)

    Hi guys, Like the title says, I got one of my two LA-610 who doesn't compress anymore.. the action faded over a few months. I tried to change the tubes and even exchanged the opto cell with the other LA-610 and it did no good. So I guess a cap or a resistor failed.. I'd need some guidance...

    Edited for clarity. So, I am setting up for some hybrid mixing for the first time and have db25 connected from the analog out of my converters to the input of my radial lunchbox. The lunch box has preamps for recording as well as an eq. I accidentally sent phantom to the analog out of my...
